2013 NFL Draft: How Have The Texans Fared Historically In The Draft?

He was a good draft pick. - Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Courtesy of Draftmetrics and the National Football Post, we now have some idea about the answer to that question.

Any Texans fan worth the slightest amount of salt can lament the selection of David Carr with the first pick of the 2002 NFL Draft or celebrate the genius of selecting Andre Johnson with the third overall pick of the 2003 NFL Draft. What about the Texans' draft performance as a whole, though? NFP gives us Draftmetrics' analysis of each team's drafts of the last five and ten years, and they say that your Houston Texans have been the very definition of mediocre (17th over the last ten years, 16th over the last five years).

Their metrics may be called into question (e.g., Pro Bowl honors are often a popularity contest, which is quite different from being the best at one's position), but it's generally an interesting read. Your thoughts on the Texans' draft prowess over the last five and ten years?
